older vintage clips from the south seas. some attractive islanders having fun.

I try not to digress into YouTube type of negative repartee here, but I want to support the comment below me in regards to the first comment that was just trashing the video. I think not only is wrong, but it is also inappropriate. I liked the music, I think some people just like to trash things, just for the sake of trashing them.

Apperently we have a wiseguy who knows everything better. This was an 8mm movie, separate sold in a small box with the mentioned title. I am very sorry but I don't know everything from all movies every produced. In stead of negative comments you can also make positive advises. But that is a choice and if you don't want to think it over, that is your problem and you can wait for comments like this. Be positive!

What has this got to do with 8mm anything? And not in colour either, for that matter. It's a few fragments from "Tabu" (F. W. Murnau & Robert Flaherty) set to breathtakingly inappropriate 20's dance band music. Don't bother .... get the real thing instead.
